Appreciate Your Local Bush Patch

June 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

Join Steve McCabe on an interactive expedition through Signal Hill Bushland

Do you drive past your local bush reserve? Have you ever stopped to think why it has been preserved? On your daily walk with the dog do you wish you knew more about the flowers and plant species in your local bush patch?

Join Steve McCabe on an expedition to Signal Hill, where every trail leads to a new discovery and every tree tells a story. With a deep-rooted passion for environmental stewardship and a wealth of knowledge in bushland management, Steve is your trusted companion on this immersive bushwalk experience.

As a resident of Perth, one of the most biodiverse cities on planet Earth, you have the unique opportunity to explore and appreciate the incredible biodiversity that surrounds us in our local bush patches. Perth boasts a rich tapestry of plant and animal life that is unmatched in most of the rest of the world. Yet, despite this abundance, many residents have yet to uncover the hidden treasures nestled within their own backyard. In this eye-opening workshop, Steve will introduce you to the remarkable plants and animals that call your local bush patch home.

As you meander along winding bush paths, Steve will share fascinating stories about the plants and creatures around you. Steve will also discuss how your local bushland patch would have fit into the traditional round of seasonal resource use across the Swan Coastal Plain. You will never look at the bush the same way again!

But this workshop is more than just a nature walk; it’s an opportunity to reconnect with the land and foster a deeper appreciation for the natural world. Through guided observations, you’ll develop a newfound sense of wonder and respect for the intricate web of life that surrounds us. You will also find out about local friends groups who look after the bushland and opportunities to get involved.

Join us as we embark on a journey of discovery, and together, let’s appreciate and protect the precious biodiversity of our local bush patches for generations to come.

Please meet at the Signal Hill entrance located on Belgravia Street
